Cumulus MX Dashboard - 12hr time format?
« on: June 19, 2016, 05:26:43 PM »
It is quite possible I am just blind to the setting.  However, is there a way to change the dashboard time format to 12hr from 24hr?

You can change the clock by clicking it, but the rest of the times are always in 24 h afaik.

In the cumulus.ini you can set whether to use 12 hour clock = 1 or 0 which I think sets the dashboard clock.

Do you know what the name of the line is in the ini file?  I'm not seeing it...

Part of my cumulus.ini is

[Display]
Heading=komoka canada
MinimizeToTray=0
FontColour=65535
BackColour=12639424
HeadingColour=10485760
ClockColour=65535
ForecastCentred=1

WMR928Channel2Caption=Extra channel 2
WMR928Channel3Caption=Extra channel 3
WindGaugeRange=50
SnowUnitText=cm
DisplayHumidex=1

and my console clock is in 24 hour.  I can't recall when I set it or if that was the default from nearly 8 years ago.

Interesting.  The latest ini version does not have that line.

I did but it did not change anything.  I'll have to keep playing around with it.

For changes in cumulus.ini to take effect you need to stop and restart the program.

I know.  No difference though.  It doesn't seem to affect it at all.

I may have assumed wrong...  As I said, can't recall how or when that was entered in my cumulus.ini

That's very strange; the default is for the 24-hour clock, it's how I have mine set and it's never changed. I'm afraid I have no idea what might make it change to the 12-hour setting. The only way to change it is to click on the clock.

No problem, Paul.  Thanks for helping.  I am clicking on the clock and the area around it.  It lights up when you mouse over it, but it does not let me alter anything.
I just got my VP2 hooked up today, and my goal was to have Cumulus and my site running by July 1.  Just trying to iron out a few things this evening.

If you click on the clock (left click it with mouse) upper right hand corner it changes from 24 to 12 hour using the latest desktop version 1.9.4 build 1099. If this is about MX I don't use that version.

Oh yeah I should have prefaced with that; I am using MX.

Not a problem.  It may not even be something that can be changed.  I'll wait for others to share input.

I also hadn't realized it was MX clock.  I only run MX occasionally, when a new version is released, and know there has been some discussions on the MX beta at http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=27 involving clock time but have not followed that thoroughly and very likely different issues.  You may get more reply posting there.
